      Is the iso ok here?

      Villian 29/5/5 over 36 hands.

      Since I hit on the flop I want to protect/make FE.

      Thoughts on it?

      Thanks!

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Make a bigger bet, ~$0,65 at least. You want to protect don't ya? :) Seems like if you have a strong hand you bet big and if you don't then smaller.

      Best regards.

      Yeah.

      I've found my betting styles to be a little bit weird, sizing included. Often when I have a strong made hand on the flop like a set i'll bet small, like 25c into a 40pot, just to try and keep others in the hand :\

      But then when i'm c-betting with air it's normally like 30-35c into a 40c pot to create more fold equity.

      And since we often talk about why if "x" has a hand does he bet so strong for value... I realise that's kind of see through play.

      But the bad thing is it seems to work, so I think i'm doing it because it's rush poker and people just fold to those stronger bets and wait for other hands, so it's actually working.

      Pretty annoying situation :)

      Of course it's not like a super huge mistake. But usually I would consider my bet sizes almost the same. If even I did realize that then definitely some others may do the same on higher limits or even on this one. I keep usually very often my eye on bet sizes, tells mostly everything about the opponents hand. Either it's the opposite or it's a strong hand.

      Yeah.

      I suppose the fact that I am thinking about my bet sizes shows that I do notice others and how I bet.

      Probably because it's rush I subconsciously think I don't really "care" how they view me, because I don't play many hands with, and so I can bully them out the pot, if I think they're fish I can bet small and keep them in, that kind of things.

      Probably a pretty bad leak, especially for when i hopefully go nl10+!
